Stocks in this article: ING

MINNEAPOLIS , Feb. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ING U.S. announced today the appointment of Dave Swanson as senior vice president and head of Employee Benefits Product and Pricing.  In this new position, Swanson will help drive the growth of ING U.S.'s Employee Benefits business through innovative product design and disciplined pricing.

In this role, Swanson will be responsible for all actuarial aspects of product development across all ING U.S. Employee Benefits product lines, including group life, group disability, stop loss and voluntary benefits.  He will also serve as a member of the ING U.S. Insurance Solutions executive team, ensuring that market needs are met and there is disciplined growth of the employee benefits business.

Swanson brings over 25 years of group benefits and financial management experience to ING U.S.  Most recently, Swanson was vice president of group protection products for Lincoln Financial Group, where he led that firm's entrance into the worksite market.  Prior to that, he served as vice president of finance where he played a key role in the company's acquisition of Canada Life's U.S. business.  Swanson began his career at CIGNA in actuarial and financial management positions supporting a variety of businesses including group and healthcare benefits, reinsurance and individual life.

Swanson, who will be based in ING U.S.'s Minneapolis office, will report to Butch Britton, chief executive officer of ING U.S. Insurance Solutions.  His appointment is effective February 4, 2013. 

"Employee Benefits is an integral part of our ING U.S. strategy and Dave's role and expertise will help us meet the current and future needs of our customers," noted Britton.  "Insurance coverage accessed through the workplace is the predominant, and in many cases the only, source of insurance protection individuals have for themselves and their families. As we look to grow this very important business segment, delivering innovative products with client value is crucial to our long-term growth and we're excited that Dave is joining us to lead this effort."
